Wizard of Oz clip...more to come

Many of you know we have spent the past three months completely absorbed in a local production of the Wizard of Oz. This clip has 5 of our FABULOUS leads. They are so talented and hilarious. Megan and Brookelynn are Ozians. Brooke brings in the stool for the scarecrow and Megan brushes the dog. Oh...and Beau and I are hiding behind the doors with the Oz gaurd. We helped carry those doors backstage as the curtains opened. I know it is all rather far away and hard to see and the sound is not great...but its the best I've got.

Army Tank Cake

My Chase turns 8 next week and he LOVES anything "army," so I decided to make him an Army tank cake. So much fun! Happy birthday Chase!

New Favorite Things

A few new favorite things:
1. LOVE this song by a little known artist named Peter Mayer. Most of his songs have a deep philosophical meaning. Truly beautiful! This one is called "Blue Boat Home." This is the only version I could find to put on here, but I think the pictures in this video are quite distracting (especially the second half). Too many pictures of the ocean when that is not at all what the song is about. My suggestion is to listen with your eyes closed.

2. I know we are way behind the pack on this one, but we just got a Wii. How much fun have we been missing out on the past few years??!! We also got the Wii fit, which is great. I think our favorite game is Mario Kart. Any suggestions for some other fun Wii games?

3. And, last but not least I found this website through a link on my cousin's blog (thanks Dyana!). This girl makes adorable purses and even se
lls patterns for some. I don't know if I'm brave enough to make one myself, but I did order this one:

If you've followed my blog for a while you've seen this before. This version is edited and updated a little more. I've decided that this is as close as I will ever come to scrapbooking. It's long, so don't feel obligated to watch the whole thing, but I love it! I love looking at the pictures to music and I am committed to finish similar montages for the other two kiddos in the next week or two.

Along with the video I thought I'd add a top 10 list about Megan too.
Top 10 things we love about Megan (in no particular order :) :

We Did It!

This weekend Melanie and I ran a 5k in Boise. The goal was to run the whole thing and we did it! We were both thinking that we would be completely spent by the end. The very strange thing is that we both felt we could go on for another mile and be fine.

Besides the run we had a great time chatting and shopping! Thanks Melanie!
